Representative Work: Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA)/Toxic and Cumulative Cases

We have successfully tried many FELA cases to verdict and have a deep working knowledge of the FELA.  For example, our team handled a FELA acute back injury case based on allegations of bad ballast and walkway conditions at a siding in eastern Oregon.  We worked with our client to investigate the case, develop a trial strategy, and try the strict-liability case to a jury for three weeks.  At the conclusion of trial, the jury awarded damages far below plaintiff's last demand.
 
Our team has also successfully handled numerous toxic tort and other exposure related claims.  Examples include: 
  • Asbestos claims
  • Inhalation injury claims
  • Diesel exhaust claims
  • Chemical exposure claims
  • Hearing loss claims
  • Cancer claims
  • Many other cumulative trauma cases involving all types of alleged injuries
